I was in a head on collision Friday.
4 fractured ribs and a fractured sternum.
Could have been so different
Could have been so much worse.

I was facing South in the left turning lane. stopped at the stop light.
All of a sudden from the North side of the road i see, a car swerve around cars at the stop light, and bullets straight at me.

I thought ... wth.

Then BANG!

I remember thinking. . "Is this the way it is going to end? "

I knew my ribs broke... I was praying that it didn't puncture my lung...

Then the car stopped

Subaru saved me

The SUV hit me going 55mph
-my car was getting breaks on. I was in the dealerships loaner. Forester 2021

Starlink kicked in and detected the crash,
Then my door opened. A sweet man talked to me till the police got to me.
He told me it was not my fault and we talked about G-d and I told him Jesus saved my life.
I put his # in my phone, I had him put in his name. I knew he was from Africa. Thierno! My new friend! (He had a dash camera that caught the whole accident) he's going to school to be a police officer! And his name means... the person who believes in God 馃グ馃挏馃寛

I was taken to the Truma hospital.

No internal injuries! #blessed
My back and neck feel good... #blessed

She was in the same hospital as me.
I don't know how she is.
Police came into hospital, gave me my license back and had a stack of tickets for her.

I think she was worse than me.
Been praying for her. 馃檹馃檹馃檹

I asked the policeman how she was, he said she needed a lot more tests done. She told him to tell me she was so sorry
